- Calling Scott Scale riders!
A mate has one and it’s is very racey – stretched out with lots of weight on your hands.
I’ve ridden it and didn’t like it. It felt like pedalling through custard which doesn’t make sense given it’s an XC race bike. I guess the geometry just didn’t suit me.
I previously had an Giant XTC Composite and Anthem X, both of which I found perfect. I guess they just fit me better.Posted 4 years agorusty90Member
Pretty much race geometry – 71/73.5 head/seat angles, 38″ wheelbase, light and stiff. Very fast uphill, very ‘interesting’ downhill. Not the bike to choose for a relaxing all-day pootle over steep, rocky terrain, but great fun to ride (especially if you’ve got wrists of steel).Posted 4 years agorollindoughnutMember
I set the saddle on my Scale in a similar if slightly less extreme way. It’s great for xc races as it straightens my back and puts more weight through my arms.
The Scale is a surprisingly capable bike and I’ve used it on some pretty wild and rocky descents. You definitely need to be brave though if doing this!
It’s a race bike so it’s agile, light, stiff and tricky to ride sometimes. I absolutely love it but opt for my Blue Pig if going for a play.
I wouldn’t advise it as a general purpose bike at all.Posted 4 years agoThe BeardMember

It’s my only MTB so I use it for everything from racing to trail centres to big days out in the hills. It is stretched out so I find I do have to concentrate on lifting the front end over things that normally you’d find yourself barrelling through on a bike with more travel and slacker angles. I do genuinely love it, it’s fast and fun and has been said before, very capable.Posted 4 years agogrtdkadSubscriber
